Insulated doors

Two single insulated Thermatrue doors facing windward. Both leak under wind-driven rain. Known? Fix?

Insulated doors

What area of the door is leaking, top, side(s), bottom...?
Are these two separate doorways or do these butt?

Insulated doors

Threshold seal not adjusted tightly.

Latch plate does not hold door tight against weatherstrip.

Poor installation.

That is one of the best doors systems you can buy, properly installed and adjusted, there should be no problem. You might consider a storm door.
